  1. PDA-Based Portable Data Collection System for Commercial Vehicle Inspection


    More than 1,300,000 Level 1 commercial vehicle inspections - a safety-critical, time-consuming, often difficult and painstaking process, especially as regards the brake inspection component -- are performed every year in the United States, under all sorts of weather and lighting conditions. The current technology used adds to the complexity and error potential inherent in this important task. In ...

  2. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  3. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  4. Biologically Based Non-Language Speech Sound Detection

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF071079

    This proposal addresses the application of new acoustic processing technologies to automatically identify and eliminate non-language speech sounds as a pre-processing stage to improve audio processing. Non-language speech sounds (coughing, breathing, ‘ah,’ ‘uhmm’) make up a large part of natural human language use, but contemporary speech recognition data preparation relies on hand-labelin ...

  5. Fast Response Fabric Test Setup and Dynamic Fabric Model for BURNSIM

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF071025

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) will develop a Fast Thermal Response Fabric Test Setup for various thermal hazard scenarios involving convection (hot gas impingement by the jet engine exhaust), radiation (fire) and combination of convection and radiation (post-crash fire of aircraft, fire flash or bomb blast). The fabric test setup will (i) measure the thermal response of various clothin ...

  6. System Self-Protection and Autonomic Response for Hardware Based Software Protection

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: OSD07I04

    SHIELD is a defense-in-depth multi-layered architecture that is suitable for a GIG end-node based upon COTS technology. The architecture contains the following layers: 1. A set of application software and data protection techniques, which utilize an out-of-band secure coprocessor and its reconfigurable hardware. 2. An in-band kernel module that detects host subversion and cooperates with secure co ...

  7. Cyber Asset-to-Mission Mapping Model for Impact Assessment

    SBC: APPLIED VISIONS, INC.            Topic: OSD06IA3

    The Secure Decisions division of Applied Visions, Inc. proposes to fill a technology gap by placing cyber attacks within their mission context, providing much-needed Situational Awareness (SA) about the people, assets, and branches of an organization that are affected. We will enhance Computer Network Defense (CND) SA by developing and testing a Cyber Asset-to-Mission Mapping Model (CAM3) system t ...

  8. SimBLEND: A Simulation-Based Learning Environment for Network Defense

    SBC: APPLIED VISIONS, INC.            Topic: AF071038

    The goal of this effort is to develop a prototype training system that provides entry level Computer Network Defense (CND) analysts with the ability to learn fundamental concepts and practice their skills, within a compelling environment that offers network simulation and a gaming interface. The system will provide both standard Computer Based Training (CBT) for instruction in basic concepts, as ...

  9. The Metadata Security Assertion Framework and Evaluation system (MetaSAFE)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF071068

    Modern defense strategy and execution is increasingly net-centric and distributed, allowing for new information flows that cross system, domain, and community of interest boundaries. But these new data flows introduce security risks as sensitive information passes outside of the domain where it was created. To mitigate this risk, the originators of information must assert control over the dissem ...

  10. Materials for Integrated Foam Core Structure

    SBC: BETHPAGE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06108

    Our TPS approach is to develop a foam core integrated structure consisting of a 3-D fabric reinforced ceramic matrix composite (CMC) outer skin connected to ceramic foam which in turn is connected to a polymer matrix composite (PMC) inner structure. The high temperature foam core element is load carrying and can have graded properties to optimize thermal/mechanical performance. Numerous parameters ...
